I found this on the german yacht.tv website. This little thing will apparently do 30 knots.
@Jackdaw - would this be fast enough for you? No cabin, but you would need a longer lake quickly ;-) This is from last year and might have been posted already, fun to watch nevertheless.
I did not find pricing, but I was not looking. Based on dimensions, this boat *should* fit in a sea-can, so shipping cost will be reasonable (considering anything sailing related is expensive and it is not an inexpensive hobby).
